wife and i say we haven't slept well since the jimmy carter administration. [laughter] thank you so much. you are holding us up. i think that's the key. and i bet i won't even have time to formally say thank you and good by two miles so i will just say two miles how eloquent his little segue introductions have been and tell him goodbye and are low and all the rest of you for coming. i am supposed to read something. i was fretting about what that would be because i wanted to make it very short. i am going to read from the end of the prologue. one of the things that i was trying to stress in the talk that i gave yesterday and indeed the panel that i had appeared on the day before is that for all of the undeniable, appalling, dark side of ernest hemingway there was also the light. there was this bone of generosity and sometimes it came out best when a child was involved and not his own child necessarily, and especially an ill child. who would not respond to that? but he seems to respond in a special way. and so i was thinking of reading something of a key west passage and i said no, th
back as a man of the people, as jimmy carter did? there is careful balance. when you look at some of this material, you can see over time that, in fact, they are carefully crafting it as well. i have always been amazed in looking at jimmy carter's inaugural serial, how informal his material tends to be compared to other presidents, and it is clearly a statement that following the nixon years, the imperial presidency, they were going to have a residency of the people -- presidency of the people. you notice that on his tickets, rather than having an inaugural ball, he has an inaugural party, which is a clear statement. then, you can come back to ronald reagan, and lo and behold, no surprise, there is a rejection of the jimmy carter years, with a very formal, gold tickets to inaugural balls, and clearly it is an inaugural ball. the program that seems sort of informal for his, becomes pinched very formal -- becomes very formal just a few years later. this says something about those administrations and what they are trying to conceive and produce during those events, and it also says s
carter -- host: he will be in attendance, as well as bill clinton. immy carter is 87. -- jimmy carter is 87. guest: that is a relatively new tradition. herbert hoover was invited to the kennedy inaugural in 1961. he was a very close friend to the president's father. the weather was so bad that he really could not get here. but he intended to be here. host: ronald reagan had the warmest and coldest inauguration days. 1981 and 1985. guest: the great story about the weather -- william howard taft, who had this self deprecatory sense of humor -- there was a blizzard. he said, i always thought it would be a cold day when i would be elected a president of the united states. speech?ow long was his guest: almost two hours. there have been efforts recently to debunk the direct cause and effect. i do not know they have been successful. host: a caller on our independent line. caller: i want to bring attention to george washington's first inauguration. it was at a little church called st. paul's chapel. that is where george washington adjourned congress during the inauguration, to go down there a
will mention, when i was 12 years old, i was here at the inauguration of jimmy carter, the last inauguration on the east side of the capital. and then four years later, when ronald reagan was inaugurated on the west front. sometimes he is credited for making that change, but that change was in the world for quite awhile. it would have been on the west front with carter, later, had ts turn that different. the view on the east front, compared to the west front was not very good. the east front used to be a parking lot, and then you have homes. parking lot, streets, kind of like a little town. whereas, here on the west side, you can accommodate these immense crowds. and they can see something. >> of course, president obama's first inaugural was attended by over a million people, i believe, gathering on the mall. the expectations is it will be somewhere about half that tomorrow. that is typical of second inauguration's. they are not as well -- publicly attended as the first. i think it is because the country is not as excited, they know who you are, they have seen you. my friend, who was also a

, was not elected. so he doesn't count. he was from michigan. jimmy carter from georgia. ronald reagan from california. the first george bush from texas via connecticut. bill clinton from arkansas and the second bush from texas. so 2008 in some ways watershed election. ends the 40-year period of sun belt dominance. and there were issues that were critical in the politics that developed, that came out of the sun belt. they tended to have a conservative cast to them. tended to be oriented around issues of strong national defense, of an opposition to unions and a defense of free enterprise politics. and also it's in the sun belt in the south and southwest, that we see the rise of what -- by the 1970s we'll be talk about as the religious right. the rise of evangelical involvement in the process. so national defense, he was a staunch anticommunist and played an important role in right wing anticommunist politics in the late 1960s, one of the things that led him to switch parties in 1964. he was a key figure in opposing labor unions and did so long people like barry gold water. early in his caree

have to say that hostage situations are what have got a lot of presidents in trouble. when jimmy carter could not rescue american hostages in iran, that was what cost and the presidency. president reagan tried to negotiate terrorist -- with terrorists. the hostage trading for arms. he said he did not do it, but in effect, that's what it looked like. this is very dangerous territory politically. one thing there really starting is the necessity of saying we will trade those two hostages. a man who probably is the most defies -- despised terrorist planner. lou: but also, a trade that has never been specifically rule the but as a ministration. they have not said categorically that it would not occur. >> i thought that was interesting. the statement today from the state department press spokesman , we don't negotiate with terrorists. no one has the following question, can you assure us that we will never trade for any kind of hostage situation? that has not been ruled out. i sure hope that in the confirmation hearings we have next week, the next two weeks with a new cabinet officers, that qu
